Mandatory 2FA Login at E-waybill/E-invoice Systems Deferred (AATO above 100 cr)

As per an update on the E-waybill portal (dated 28/07/2023), the mandatory 2 Factor Authentication (2FA), for login access of taxpayers with AATO above Rs 100 Crore, has been further extended up to August 20, 2023. This seems to be the second and the last extension in the row, which has been considered based on requests from some of the taxpayers. After this no further extension is expected to be provided. Users are requested to register for 2FA immediately and also create sub-users so that EWB activities are managed without any problem.

Earlier, on June 12, 2023, it was announced by the NIC that starting from July 15, 2023, all taxpayers with AATO above Rs 100 crore would be required to use 2FA for logging into the e-Way Bill/e-Invoice System, however on July 14, 2023, such deadline had been extended from July 15 to July 31, 2023.

This additional security layer involves using a One-Time Password (OTP) received via SMS or generated through Sandes/NIC-GST-Shield App.

The purpose of this update is to enhance the security of the system and ensure that only authorized individuals can access it. Taxpayers with an AATO above Rs 100 crore must comply with this requirement, which now takes effect on August 20, 2023.
